It's the New Zealand Olympic Committee, guys... We've qualified for Beijing!" 'Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil'. 22 February, 2008
Reference Number: DCDL-0005531
Shows three monkeys sitting on a bench; the first has its hands over its ears 'Hear no evil', the second has its hand over its eyes but has a mobile phone held to his ear 'See no evil' and the third has its hands over its mouth 'Speak no evil'. The monkey with the mobile phone says that the New Zealand Olympic Committee is on the phone saying that they have qualified for Beijing. Refers to the fact that the New Zealand Olympic Committee (NZOC) has backed down over plans to stop its athletes making political statements at this year's Beijing Games following government intervention. Keith Locke of the Greens said "One major reason for the Olympics being awarded to Beijing was to shine a light on the human rights situation and thus help advance the principles of freedom so central to the Olympic movement."
